A BIG THANK YOU!

Well what a Day we had yesterday!  We had a stall at Penistone Show for The Waggon and Horses and what a fantastic Day was had by all!! It was lovely to see many of our existing customers who popped by to say hello and have a little drink and was also a pleasure to talk to people who have yet to visit us here at The Waggon. Many bookings were taken for our Christmas Events which can be viewed on our website and also many bookings for meals in The Waggon itself.  If you are planning on attending our Christmas events or simply planning on having your Christmas celebrations at the Waggon then I do urge you to book ASAP as we are getting bookings coming thick and fast now and I wouldn’t want you to miss out!! Indeed Christmas Day is already sold out.

Also at The Penistone Show we were selling The Heads Together Charity calendar  featuring 12 local lads who barred (nearly) all to raise money for this worth while cause set up by Claire Throssell in memory of her two boys; Jack and Paul.  The commeraderie between Claire, these men and their families is truly fantastic and I am sure that Jack and Paul will have been looking down and smiling at what an amazing woman their mum is and how the community has come together in their name.  It was a mixture of emotions for everyone but there was fun and humour aswell.  The calendar is available from the website and The Waggon and Horses along with other local businesses.

Well finally all the planning, advertising, and hard work paid off for our first ever Christmas Bingo Lunch which we held in Rafters last Wednesday.  It was a full house (excuse the pun lol 🙂 and everyone was seated at 12.30pm and enjoyed homemade Tomato and basil soup, followed by succulent roast turkey with all the trimmings ending with homemade sherry trifle.  From the comments received our chefs once again excelled themselves!

Then came the prize bingo and what laughs we had! 5 games in total with prizes and vouchers to be won.  As we finished and people started to drift off everyone said how it was a lovely, fun afternoon and something that ‘little bit different’.  It was nice to see everyone enjoying themselves and for this we thank those who attended.
